Forest and shelterbelt tree planting by all individuals and agencies during the placating year 1951 (July 1950 through June 1951) amounted to 456,368 acres--a decrease of 41,100 acres or 9 percent from the 1950 figure. The year's accomplishment by ownership classes is as follows: The federal government planted about the same amount on federal lands as it had the previous year. The states and other public landowners (non-federal) planted 11 percent fewer acres this year--a decrease of 5,400 acres. Private landowners planted 10 percent fewer acres this year--a decrease of 36,300 acres. In 17 states, private land planting decreased 79,000 acres or 44 percent mostly because of lack of planting stock rather than for want of the wish to do planting. In 10 states private land planting remained at about the same level. In 23 states private land planting increased 43,000 acres, or 35 percent.
